4:00 pm
a.m. eastern straight through 9:00 a.m. right here on cnn. don't forget twitter. i'm ail velshi. i read every one of your tweets. have a great weekend. -- captions by vitac -- hello. thanks for joining us. i'm fredricka whitfield. following early reports today that ousted egyptian president hosni mubarak had fallen into a coma, the hospital where he has been since april now says he has regained consciousness after falling into a coma. let's bring in fred pleitgen. >> hosni mubarak's health is an issue here in egypt. keep in mind when we heard earlier today is that the lawyer for hosni mubarak said he was in a, quote, deep coma, he fell into that coma midday local time
4:01 pm
and that the lawyer was on the way to the hospital and didn't know whether or not hosni mubarak would ever regain consciousness. now, the hospital for itds part as you said, said, yes, he did lose consciousness. he fainted for a while earlier today. but regained consciousness quite shortly after that. they're also telling us that apparently it's not uncommon for mubarak to faint every once in a while. simply because his health is so problematic. the reason why this is such a big issue here in egypt, fredricka, is because mubarak is due to stand trial on august 3rd for atrocities allegedly committed during his reign here of almost 30 years in power. and, of course, during the revolution that started on january 25th and that eventually led to him being ousted. so a lot of people are watching very, very closely as to how his health is going. there's been some issues in the past where he felt unwell during interrogations and also apparently his heart stopped a couple of days ago. he had to be resuscitated. this all is very, very big news
4:02 pm
to egyptians. of course to people around the world. because he's such an important figure, fredricka. >> fred, those legal proceedings are to happen in a matter of weeks. might it be delayed as a result of his health matters? >> reporter: well, that's, of course, the big question. that's, of course, one of the things people who are now protesting here in cairo and the demonstrations have been ramped up over this past week with people refusing to leave once again, putting pressure on the government here. they, of course, are saying they believe this could be a employ. this could be a ploy to try and prevent hosni mubarak from having to stand trial. at this point it really is up in the air whether or not he is actually going to be able to stand trial on august 3rd or whether or not the proceedings might start without them, might be delayed. so these are certainly things that are being talked about right here and that are really very contentious issues here in egyptian society, fredricka. >> fred pleitgen, thanks so much from cairo. another key adviser to
4:03 pm
afghan president hamid karzai is dead today. killed by gunmen who barged into his home in central afghanistan. there he is on the left meeting american commanders back in 2002 when he was a provincial governor. officials say the attackers also killed a member of afghanistan's parliament and conned security detail. this days after president karzai's brother was assassinated in kandahar. david, tell us about what's happening right here. >> reporter: hi, fred. just moments ago we spoke with both nato and afghan officials. this gun battle that has been raging since about 8:00 p.m. local time here in kabul continues. what we've learned is that afghan security forces are being led by afghan national police. now, this is significant because nato and part of the transition made it clear that they're intent on positions more and
4:04 pm
more authority toward afghan forces. today was actually the first day of the transition period to be extended over the next two years. what we see right now, the afghan national police taking the lead in this gun battle. as you said, at least three attackers entered the home of a key ally -- excuse me. key adviser to prosecute hamid karzai. again, this comes on the heels of the loss of a separate ally last week, the death of his half brother, considered both a powerful u.s. alie, an alie to hamid karzai himself. despite nefarious connections to opium snuggling, he was a key figure. again we see another key adviser killed today on sunday. it really comes as an interesting time. we're seeing basically the drawdown of nato forces and it really remains to be seen how
4:05 pm
afghan national security forces will continue to take the lead if these attacks continue to take place. fredricka? >> david arioto, thanks so much from kabul. some fast moving developments today in britain as well. the murdoch phone hacking scandal has claimed its first public official. we'll have much more on that story right after this short break. to use legalzoom for important legal documents. so start your business, protect your family, launch your dreams. at we put the law on your side.
4:06 pm
4:07 pm
launch your dreams. discover customersl are getting five percent cashback bonus at the pump... and at many of the places their summer plans take them. it pays to switch, it pays to discover. all right. the murdoch phone hacking scandal has claimed its first public official now. a short time ago, britain's top cop suddenly resigned. his resignation comes on the same day police arrested a top murd murdoch executive.
4:08 pm
atika shubert, why did the commissioner of britain's metropolitan police suddenly resign? >> well, he said basically that he had done nothing wrong but that there had been such intense scrutiny over the relationship between metropolitan police officers and "news of the world" executives that he felt it was best for him to resign, to keep the force from being distracted, so he could continue with all those questions and investigations that are ongoing while the metropolitan police can continue on with their work fighting crime and other, you know, law enforcement issues. now, the specific incident he's talking about is apparently when "news of the world" former editor neil wallace was hired by the metropolitan police here in london to be a communications consultant. now, this has become -- has come under intense scrutiny. in fact, the home affairs minister here, teresa may, was due to give a statement tomorrow about her concern over the
4:09 pm
impropriety of that relationship. sir paul stevenson says so far he sees nothing wrong, that his integrity is intact. but because he did not want to distract from police work he is resigning as commissioner. >> so, atika, this happens on the same day that murdoch exec rebecca brooks was arrested. he was asked to show up for questioning. the next thing you know she was arrested. tell us more about that. >> that's right. these are basically two strands of the same scandal that are happening. in her case, in rebecca brook's case, she had an appointment to see the police today in the afternoon. she walked in and was apparently arrested in connection with the investigations not just of the phone hacking allegations, but into investigations of paying out police for information. so we have -- as far as we understand it, rebecca brooks is still being questioned almost for seven hours now. and we haven't heard about her release. we're still waiting to hear more from police. >> so is there a feeling this is
4:10 pm
just kind of the tip of the iceberg as it pertains to arrests, questioning, resignations? >> definitely. it certainly shows that the scandal is growing wider and wider involving more officials, more higher ups. i should point out, rebecca brooks's arrest is the most high-profile arrest. and with each arrest it has gotten closer and closer to the murdoch family. she is a trusted lieutenant of rupert murdoch. so the mere fact that she has been arrested is very significant. >> atika shubert, thanks so much from london. meantime, this is a very exciting day, especially if you love soccer. united states of america versus japan. those two teams are on the pitch face to face right now in frankfurt, germany. it's the women's world cup of soccer. we're live at the venue, of course. we're also live in tokyo. that is where we find paula hancocks among fans hoping for
4:11 pm
their first tournament title. on the other side of the world we're live in new york with susan candiotti. she's with usa supporters at a german sports pub in manhattan. we're also watching soccer fans in washington, d.c., spending their sunday cheering on the american women. all right. so let's first go to tokyo where it is after 5:00 in the morning. but that certainly does not mean that people are not going to come out in full force there. paula, describe the scene there. >> reporter: well, fredricka, up until about a minute ago this was a very excited crowd. then the u.s. scored and this crowd has gone silent. there were huge groans as the usa scored the first goal of this match. now, there were just three people cheering in this room. we discovered there are three americans right in the back there. there's about 200 people here crammed into this little bar in
4:12 pm
central tokyo. it is after 5:00 in the morning. everyone is determined to see this through. it helps that the beer is still flowing here. i should point out that during halftime, this table in front of me all actually had a bit of a power nap to try and keep going through the second half. it is a bit quieter now. it's a bit more depressed. but people are hoping that japan can come back. fredricka? >> okay. paula, we'll check back with you and see -- uh-oh, if there's going to be another score. i saw people were about to get out of their seats there. let's check in in manhattan where we know a lot of folks are yelling "go, usa." there we find susan candiotti. she is in a german pub right there in manhattan. all right. i'm sure there's a lot of excitement when usa scored one point. >> reporter: fred, the usa scored. it's so noisy, if you reported it, i can't even hear it. team usa scored its first goal about, i don't know, what, 30 seconds ago? and the cheers erupted, go usa,
4:13 pm
usa, usa. obviously there are fans from all over the place here. we're in a german bar called zo zoomschneider's. i love that name. they're putting away the beer. putting away the pret zels. everyone's having a grand time. beth, you saw them just score the first goal. you could hear this crowd erupt. what was that moment like for you. >> it's so exciting and so great to see so many people out supporting women's sports. it's a great team. you can tell how much they want to win. it's a great atmosphere and so exciting to be here in new york watching this game and everyone wants them to bring home the cup. it's going to be a great time. >> what do you think it'll do for young people especially to get them involved in the game more? >> i think soccer is such a great team sport. i loved it as a child. i want so many people to play it. i think this has a chance to just make it relevant again and make people want to play the sport, especially young girls.
4:14 pm
they're such good role models for so many young girls in the country. >> reporter: your enthusiasm is catching. thanks very much. craig over here, you grew up playing soccer, too. not so much now. how do you think of the game so far? it's really been defensive until a little while ago. >> i mean, so far the chances that both teams have been creating, japan has had far less chances than the u.s. right now. it was just amazing. although alex morgan, she scored the equalizer. if that stands it's going to look like a complete brilliant substitution by the head coach of the usa right now. >> reporter: this guy knows his game. who's your favorite player? >> right now, i love hope solo. she's just been phenomenal this whole tournament. >> the goalie? >> she's the goalkeeper right now. been stopping everything her way. she's a giant brick wall. nothing's getting past her today. >> reporter: prediction? >> i was going to say 2-1. if the score stands at 1-0 i'd be perfectly okay with that as well. >> reporter: i'm telling you, this is the place to be. if you're a soccer fan in new york, this is a really popular
4:15 pm
bar. everyone is thrilled. you can see it. you can feel it. you can sense what's going on. goose bumps for sure, fredricka. back to you. >> all right, susan. who knew you'd have your own sports caster right there. maybe that little -- i don't know. maybe that little noise meant another score or something like that. we're going to go on to frankfurt. zain, describe the scene for me. >> reporter: i'm inside the stadium and the atmosphere is absolutely electric. chants of "usa, usa." amazing when the u.s. finally put the ball into the back of the net. meghan rapina spending a cross to alex morgan, who is the youngest player on the team. minutes ago she was just put in as a substitute. so it's become very exciting. the heat is really on japan.
4:16 pm
fred, the u.s. has had the upper hand throughout this game. they have been so aggressive. they have so many shots at goal. and they just kept on missing by the smallest of margins. they've done an amazing job keeping possession. even though everyone said japan is the more skilled team, we're going to continue to watch this and see how hard the japanese can hustle. but hope solo, the goely, playing incredibly well. the japanese goalie has also made a couple of pretty impressive saves. right now the match belongs to the u.s. with alex morgan putting the team out in front. the u.s. could make history in about 15 minutes. fred? >> oh, my goodness. so far, score, 1-0, usa. zain verjee, thanks so much from frankfurt. of course, we can hear all the excitement there from the stadium where she's reporting. here's another look at soccer fans getting very excited about the game and watching it -- sorry about that.
4:17 pm
we lost that signal. when we can we'll take you to d.c. where folks are very pumped up about this world cup soccer. coming up later in the hour, we'll see how the women's world cup final is impacting the popularity of soccer overall here in the u.s. and with the current state of the economy, the biggest concern is jobs. so here's a question for you. what percentage of people work retail jobs? 32.7%? very precise. 17.6%? 45.6%? or 24.1%?
4:18 pm
announcer: when life's this hard, it's no wonder 7,000 students drop out every school day. visit and help kids in your community stay in school. the answer, 24.1% employment. according to the national retail federation providing 42 million jobs. pretty significant. every week we focus on ways
4:19 pm
to get a jump start in the workforce. if you are mid-career or you know someone who is, you need to listen up. in today's reclaim your career, we focus on workers whose careers have stalled. val valorie burton is the author of "where do you go from here?" a lot of times people are humming along, feel like they're veterans. then they feel like wait a minute. i'm kind of stuck. how do you reboot? >> i asked questions on facebook on people who they were dealing with. a lot came back, i feel stagnant, middle management and can't break out. it's a frustrating place to be. >> what is that first step? >> it's really, really important that you be honest with yourself. for a lot of people that's really hard to do. one of the ways you can do that is to make sure that you're not only looking at what is it you can do a little differently but what do other people say when they look at your career. so if there was like a hidden video camera over the last week watching you at work, would i see the passion? would i see the attitude?
4:20 pm
sometimes i think people kind of fall out of love with their jobs. >> they feel a little complacent, feel like they're, i don't know, i guess a little mundane. just in that rut. but they've got to get excited about it before anybody gets excited about them. is that what you're saying? >> that's what i'm saying. you've got to fall back in love with that job. you have to make the decision you're going to have the passion to do it. you also have to make sure people are seeing your efforts. >> then you need to work on those relationships. you need to make sure they know what your attributes are and you're easy to work with or you are -- >> two things. >> -- valuable. >> that you're valuable. one of the questions you need to ask is do people feel better when they leave your presence or worse? is a project better off because you're a part of it or more chaotic and complicated. the other thing to do is something hr departments will do. a lot of departments do a 360 assessment. you want that feed back from your boss but also customers or people who work from you and your peers. that can be hard to do. >> how are you going to do that? kind of survey folks? >> survey folks.
4:21 pm
you ask them what do you think i can improve upon? what do you think my strengths are? how do you see me in this environment? is there something no one wants to say to me but someone really needs to say to me so i can improve. >> then you set new and specific goals for yourself. >> be clear, very specific. where do you want to be a year from now? how much income do you want to be making? what kind of responsibilities do you want? then what do you want less of? because for a lot of people there's some things they'd like to kind of cut out of whatever their job is. that would make them more effective. >> understand the big picture. the big picture of your company, not necessarily just your goals? >> yes. this isn't just about your goals. this is about what's the big picture for where the company is headed and where's the company right now? so many companies are dealing with change. if you're one of those people that's fighting against change, you're not probably one of the things that's going to get promoted to that next level. they need people that are going to be resilient and flexible. >> how do you close the gap between where you are and where you want to be? you've set those goals that you
4:22 pm
just mentioned. >> yeah. a lot of people will say, you know what? my company is only hiring from the outside. or i feel like the door is just shut. that means you need to say, is it time to try to move into another department? do i need to look for another company or another organization? sometimes rebooting your career means coming up with a really big goal that might really stretch you to move to some different place but you'll be able to reach your goals if you're able to do that. be really honest about what that gap is. >> you really have to be really introspective the whole way through about who you are, what you want, what's realistic and what you're projecting. >> yeah. don't just blame. don't just get frustrated with the company but get real about what it is that you can do. if there's nothing you can do and you're not willing to stay stuck, be willing to exit. >> move on. that's right. to walk. all right. thanks so much, valorie burton. always good to see you. >> thanks, fred. if you think you have seen it all, you want to stick around. have you ever -- you like
4:23 pm
pedicures, right? how about a fishy pedicure. have you heard? >> i haven't. >> you're going to have to stick around for that one. little fish nibbling at your feet. >> i don't know about that, fred. and better than ever! right now, go to priceline for a sneak peek at recent winning hotel bids to find where you can save up to 60% on hotels. * we'll even email you other people's winning bids, so you'll know what price to name. *á with new hotel bid alerts, from priceline.
4:24 pm
this has got to be one of
4:25 pm
the hottest summers that many people can remember. jacqui jeras in the weather center now. it really does feel like that. that plus the humidity, that heat index soaring. >> it is. it's brutal. a lot of people kind of comparing this to july of 1936 when a number of records were broken. we're getting close to those. we haven't beat them just yet. obviously we really don't want to. this is a terrible heat wave. you know, this is just kind of the tip of it all. we're talking about a long-lived event here that's going to stick with folks at least through the middle of the week. we have excessive heat warnings in this bright purple area with advisories in the orange. this really grips the nation's midsection. we're talking about from international fall, minnesota, all the way down to dallas, texas, where it's going to be feeling like between 100 to 115 degrees. feels like 110 right now in minneapolis. we're talking about really dangerous conditions when your body's exposed to heat for a period of time, when it's this extreme, you can get sick very
4:26 pm
easily. you need to drink a lot of water. make sure you get lots of fluids in your body. take it easy. if you do feel faint or not feeling well, make sure you get in the shade. check on your neighbors. check on the elderly. check on your friends. make sure everybody's doing okay. one of the other things to think about when we talk about a heat wave, we focus a lot on just how bad it gets, the worst heat of the day. part of the problem is temperatures overnight, they're going to be in the 70s. even pushing 80 degrees. there's no time to recover from this heat. that's what makes it so deadly. minneapolis, you're feeling like 107. 98 in chicago. 103 degrees is the temperature that your body is feeling right now in dallas. this block pattern is basically what's setting up and why nothing's going to be moving a whole heck of a lot the next couple of days. it feels better on the west coast. it feels better on the east coast. atlanta, 92. i was in minneapolis yesterday. i was actually wanting to get home to the south. minneapolis, really rough all
4:27 pm
week long. take a look at that. into the 90s. there's those low temperatures that i was talking about. that's a real concern. one last thing i want to mention, fredricka, we'll talk a little bit more about this in the next hour, hurricane hunters have been flying into this area of disturbed weather off the coast of florida. looks like we might have a tropical depression. i think they're going to start issues advisories probably 5:00 eastern times. when that happens we'll bring that to you. >> so far a pretty slow start to this hurricane season. >> knock on wood. hurricane season starts june 1. it doesn't usually start cooking until mid-august. >> okay. this hot, hot weather means why not have another excuse to go inside and go get a pedicure, right? >> sure. you're showing your toenails this time of the year. >> i'm only mentioning this because we have video and a little story about a very interesting pedicure. you know about this? >> i've heard a little bit about this. >> interesting little fishy tale. let's take a look here. that's what happens when you stick your feet in the tank. yeah. these little, i don't know, dead
4:28 pm
skin nibbling fish. >> where is this? is this in the u.s.? >> this is actually in british columbia. vancouver island. you're seeing these images. guess what? it has now been banned. while this seems like these ladies and others have been enjoying it -- the health department says -- >> it's supposed to eat away the dead skin and calluses on your feet. >> the health department says, no, this is not safe. they feel like there's no way in which to secure the safety of the fish and the feet. >> you can't sanitize fish. >> you can't do that like you would sanitize the tools. they're actually calling the fish tools that cannot be sanitized. >> i couldn't do it anyway. it would tickle. it would gross me -- i would have to not think about what was happeni happening. >> apparently it was banned in a few other places in the states, too. texas among the states who said no. this fishy spa, it's not going to happen. >> everybody's got their own thing they like. >> a little chuckle out of that one. thanks so much, jacqui.
4:29 pm
we'll see you again later in the chat room where there'll be more chuckling. >> that'll be fun. >> thanks so much. soccer fans, listen up. they're holding their breath across the united states and japan. it's the finals. the women's world cup. already the usa has scored one. an update right after this. no, it's just for new people. hey ! chocolate, vanilla or strawberry ? chocolate ! chocolate it is ! yeah, but i'm new, too. umm... he's new... er... than you. even kids know it's wrong to treat new friends better than old friends. at ally bank, we treat all our customers fairly, with no teaser rates and no minimum deposit to open. it's just the right thing to do.

4:38 pm
it's a great place to watch the game. fredricka? >> that's fantastic, susan. we'll check back with you as the match goes into overtime. okay. in our financial fix today, you can save money by changing a few habits at home. yesterday i talked to financial planner karen lee. we started out at the dining room table. >> the biggest area of overspending in a typical family's budget is food. so it's the difference of eating out, take-out, or cooking at home. so i took a look at if you go out for a dinner for four and we're not talking about anything excessive. you're talking a minimum of 50 bucks to get out of that restaurant. >> yeah, it is pricey. >> take-out, drive-through window you're probably talking 25 bucks. but to cook a meal at home you should be able to cook it for about 10 bucks for a family of four. >> that's a giant savings. >> the difference there is between $2,600 a year and $5,200 a year. that's some substantial saving.
4:39 pm
i'm going to tell you that you should never be paying full price for anything. when you go into a department store, i want you going right to the back. >> sale rack. >> whole chapter in my book on the thrill of getting a bargain. go right to the back and start looking. it has to be at least 50% off for you to buy it. >> really? >> my daughter told me i had to wear this outfit today. >> because you got it for a steal. >> my new jumpsuit i got on a well known department store here in atlanta on the clearance rack. guess how much i paid. >> i'm terrible at this. >> $12. >> no. >> yes. >> you did not. >> $12. that is why i'm wearing it today. >> oh, my gosh. that is an incredible deal. >> isn't it? and it's cute. and it's cute. >> i could get you for shoplifting on that. >> i'm not a huge advocate on this because i haven't really done it much. thrift stores and consignment stores. my sister-in-law has one in maryland. i was just up there. i got some really cute things. guess what you do in a thrift
4:40 pm
store. you take advantage of other people's compulsive spending. you will find things there with the tags still on that other people bought, never wore, send them to the thrift store. >> that's really a great deal. utility bills. how in the world do you get away from that? hottest summer. everyone's experiencing a spike. >> they're staggering. >> what are you options? >> again, incrementally you can make a difference by turning your ac up a couple degrees. you can get some fans in your house. you, of course, we talked last week about water. it does not take ten minutes to warm up a shower. i have to tell my teenagers. just get in there, get it done. >> two-minute shower. >> that's right. when you're going out of town, turn your ac way up. i love to tell this story. my father used to turn the heat so low in the winter and my room was in the basement. and we used to keep a thermometer. it would be 52 degrees. his answer was get another blanket. >> that's cheaper. >> but it's incremental. these incremental things are going to add up. >> karen lee, always trying to

4:45 pm
show? >> here's the theory. the theory is that there was a sodomy case decided by the supreme court involving a gay couple. and the supreme court invalidated the criminal sodomy laws in texas. so the theory here, it's really pie in the sky. i teach this stuff so i get it. but what they're arguing is, well, in utah, which has worked hard to ban polygamy, they're saying that there's a public policy, that is the state is, to ban multimember marriages. the cody brown and his people are saying, no, no, no. we have a right of privacy based on that anti-sodomy case. ultimately the united states district judge is going to take a good look at it, fredricka, and, throw it out. it's going nowhere. >> okay. richard, i don't know. are you giving up some of those rights maybe voluntarily when you sign up for reality tv and you've got cameras everywhere, what you're going to show and

publicize everything in the first place? >> is reality tv really reality? i don't know. all this stuff seems staged to me. >> good point. >> the issue, fred, is intimate behavior between consenting adults behind closed doors, are we going to prosecute that? avery brought up the texas case. don't mess with texas. they did. >> that's right. >> here, you know, this is what they're saying. i don't know. i don't think it's going anywhere. they do a civil ceremony with one wife. then they marry three or four wives in a religious ceremony and live in a marriage-type scenario like that. it's -- in utah they don't really prosecute polygamist marriages in utah. they huff and puff about it, but they don't prosecute it. i don't know. now with the gay marriage issue being passed like this, they're hoping that polygamy will be the next major issue to be tackled by states and the -- >> never going to happen.

4:52 pm
